Principal's Message

Thank you all for making my first week as principal, a great one! I am so impressed with what I have seen at Springfield so far. You all are truly amazing. I know some of you are excited for the big Clemson game tomorrow night or you might be rooting for LSU. Since I am a big sports fan, you may wear your favorite team's colors with jeans tomorrow. If you don't care who wins, you can wear a Springfield shirt and jeans. I hope you have a wonderful week!

Synergy is what happens when one plus one equals ten or a hundred or even a thousand! It's the profound result when two or more respectful human beings determine to go beyond their preconceived ideas to meet a great challenge.
